I see Alec turns 18 pretty soon. I wonder if he ages out of Shriner's services at that point. I hope he doesn't end up out on the streets, hanging with the junkies and Jezebels.

He might be able to make a decent living doing gimp porn.

Well, he's got that disease in which his bones break easily, so he could advertise himself with "find out which of my bones won't break".

This graphic from Forbes shows that Shriners has 2x in profit as much as donations are per year. YOU DON'T NEED TO SEND THEM MONEY. They get enough from Shriners groups around the country to pay expenses for the hospitals. Note they have $1.2 Billion a year from "Other Income". A huge part of your donations are going to fundraising expenses.

I saw the ad again today and they are bragging about how many surgeries they’ve had like it’s a contest.

In the Christmas ad, they speed up "and presents on the tree" so it no longer sounds like the original song. Which annoys me. We hear enough wall-to-wall Xmas music this time of year, on TV, in the stores, etc - at least GET THE MUSIC RIGHT.....

Right. Which means several things:

1) They've been through so many surgeries that they're no longer scared to go through all of that - which while admirable in its own right, doesn't make a lot of sense to me - especially at their ages. How many of us are NOT nervous about going under the knife? Especially if it's going to have to be many times? 

2) That having surgery is a game - or at least such a cool thing that everyone should get them all the time. Like taking pills as if they were candy. ("Mom, can I go to Shriners and get as many operations as Kaleb has? That's so KEWL!!")

Clearly, I don't expect these commercials to be complete downers - it's nice to feel that these kids do have hope in their lives and can have fun together. But this does go just a bit too far. And it really shows me just how much they're being used by Shriners to project such an over the top fun-and-games image with things that are really very serious. I have to imagine that the last thing the real Alec and Kaleb want is yet more surgery. Would any of us want to face that?

Plus none of those instruments are actually playing on the song. They just thought it would look cute to have them mime guitars and drums like they were
